Lisa McCormick Baxter, Beauty Co-ordinator at South Eastern Regional College said:

“As part of their course each year, the Level 3 students are required to demonstrate their skills. This year, the students have decided to maximise this opportunity and fundraise for AWARE. We are inviting local people to come and support our fundraiser. If you fancy treating yourself for the bank holiday weekend, pop in and have a treatment or two for £5.00 (per treat) and enjoy a cuppa and tray bake.”

Lesley Wright, Community and Events Fundraiser with AWARE said:

“AWARE is the depression charity for Northern Ireland and have an established network of 23 support groups in rural and urban areas.  One of which operates here in the heart of your community in the Bridge Centre in Lisburn every Thursday night at 7.30pm. Support groups welcome people with depression and bipolar disorder as well as carers for people with the illness and are free to attend. One in five of us experience mental ill health so please come and support Level 3 Beauty Therapy Students by taking part and raising some funds for AWARE. Every £100 raised will run your local weekly support group meeting for a week.”
